Bills Introduced – 03-20-18

Yesterday, with both the House and Senate in session, there were 33 bills introduced. Of those, one may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 5356 To establish the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence. Rep. Stefanik, Elise M. [R-NY-21]

Okay, I am not an AI geek, but this sounds like it may be interesting. It was assigned to too many committees (5) to have much chance of advancing, but I am probably going to be watching this one anyway. It will be real interesting to see how they define ‘artificial intelligence’.

I have to mention another bill (actually a resolution) in passing; no further coverage here. H Res 791 was introduced “Expressing support for the designation of Cesar Chavez's birthday, March 31, as National Border Control Day”. I’m not sure if this was intended as irony or a slap at Cesar Chavez; it is hard to tell with Rep Gohmert (R,TX).
